Last date for Sea Mail is 15 September

    If you send parcels back to the UK for Christmas and have already bought them. It would be a good idea and cheaper to send them via Sea Post. Last day for posting them is out of Sydney on 15 September.

    Just got this off the Australia Post site

     

    "The Sea Mail closing date for gifts being sent to the United Kingdom is 21 September, while most of mainland Europe is one week later, on 28 September. If you need to send gifts to South America you'll have to get organised even sooner with some closing dates as early as 17 August."

    All Sea Mail departs from Sydney so people sending parcels from interstate or outside the metropolitan area should allow extra time for their parcels to travel to Sydney before the listed closing date.

     

     

    So although the last posting date is the 21st, it has to go to Sydney first, so I would use the 15th as last post day
